Owner description: A visit to the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum is more than you might expect! Climb 219 steps for a breathtaking view of both St. Aug and the beaches. Or go below to discover a 1782 British shipwreck. Take guided tours, free with admission, on the hour 11 am - 3 pm. Check out the exhibits in the Keepers' House and Maritime Archaeology Center. Visitors also encounter ghosts on the nighttime Dark of the Moon tour, which is the only St. Augustine ghost tour that gets you inside the Lighthouse. Book in advance because it fills up fast, and book mid-week to avoid crowds. For general admission purchase your tickets on-line in advance w/coupon code LH15 to get a 15% discount off regular admission prices. Or join as a family member for discounts to local attractions, and 20% off in the Museum shop as well as free admission all year long. Step up and make a difference at our non-profit museum. You help keep the light shining when you visit.

The lighthouse had a great view from the top.You got to also look inside the light keepers house. I think it would of been nicer to actually have a tour guide take you around.

A perfect place for lighthouse lovers to visit. We came many years ago and it was so sad to see it vandalized and closed, Now, lovingly restored, it is a joy to climb those historic steps, thinking all the way to the top about the dedication it took to be the keeper of the light. It's HOT, and it's work to climb but the view is worth it. NOT for familis with small energetic children.

its a awesome place to see. the entrance is around $10 theres some trails to walk around the lighthouse. the climb is about 6 or 7 stories high. not for people that dont like small spaces or are afraid of hights. towards the end the stair become really narrow. you might end up with no air once you make it up there so take your time to get to the railing. the view its spectacular. you can see all the way to the open ocean. this i a must if in town.
